Dominic St. Clair, is a fighter, he has literally fought his way around the world.  But his last escapade of being shanghaied and forced to work aboard a ship, forced Dominic to look closely at his life.  Why was he fighting?  What was he running from?  Heading towards Colorado where he knew his sister Odessa was, Dominic finds himself in the small town of Gunnison Colorado, where he is approached by a man and his son about going in halves on a gold mine, the dad swears has a rich vein in it. Declining the offer initially, Dominic decides to at least ride up to the claim to check things out.  Only when he arrives, no one is there, a day or so later the boy arrives home alone, his father having been murdered on the trail home.
Now Dominic is forced to claim a mine he isn't interested in, to protect the orphan's interest.  Plus he has a young boy to take care of, with no known relatives to step in and take the boy.  Throw in a hostile neighbor lady, and a couple of greedy mine owners trying to cheat him out of the mine, and the neighbor lady out of her land too, this book is filled with excitement, danger and truly will keep you reading front to back.
Claim, is the final book in The Homeward Trilogy.  Saddened to see the trilogy end, I also look forward to what is next for Lisa T. Bergren!  I enjoyed the entire series. 386 pages, $14.99 US 5 stars.
